Whether it be facing misogynistic remarks from her boss or being pressured by condescending co-workers, stress is just another part of the job for 25-year-old red panda Retsuko. Despite being one of the most diligent workers at her office, her diminutiveness and modesty often lead her to be exploited by her colleagues. However, when her irritation hits the limit, Retsuko brings forth her unique brand of letting off steam: aggressive death metal karaoke bashing the idiocy and hypocrisy of her co-workers' actions and work life. Although this venting only takes place in her mind, it gives her an outlet to counter her frustration in a world where hierarchy and appearances reign supreme.

Aggresive Retsuko manages to be hilarious with just a single minute per episode.

The story is simple, Retsuko has to deal with way too relatable stressful situations during her everyday life, and when she can't handle what happens in that episode anymore, she goes crazy and starts singing death metal music, the way it's done makes the series really fun because you totally emphatize with the protagonist and her reactions are just priceless.

The character designs are simple but charming, the music is mostly 2-3 songs and that's all which is fine considering its duration, and there is always Retsuko giving some lyrics in her rage attacks read more

to be honest, this is probably one of the most enjoyable animes i've every watched

i have never felt relatable to a character then Retsuko, Retsuko is literally me when someone says something i dont like,does something i dont like, act a way i dont want them to or do something that i dont like,
there are 100 episodes and all of them are 1 minute which means that you can get this anime done in 1 hour and 40 minutes

the story is simple: Retsuko deals with stressful situations and goes to karaoke to start singing death metal music to help with her stress,

all the characters read more

Aggretsuko is the working man's (or woman's) Hello Kitty. A too-real story about a young office worker who hates her job and co-workers and needs to find some way to cope. Aggretsuko's many tales of navigating office politics, dealing with the cold reality that conflicts with her imaginative and hopelessly romantic ideals in her mind, and finding happiness in her world of monotony and disrespect, allow for us the viewer to see the story of struggles that may or may not be too close to home for some of us poor unfortunate souls. The brilliance of Aggretsuko is in the relatability of the characters. Each read more

Aggressive Retsuko is about a red panda office lady that relieves stress by singing death metal. That's all you need to know.

All the characters are anthropomorphic animals, and I think that's quite charming. Retsuko is basically the cutest thing ever when she's not screaming death metal.

The humour is alright, managing to make me smirk a few times throughout the ten episodes I've seen. One could say this is a family-friendly version of Detroit Metal City - though a family-friendly version of DMC is not DMC at all.

The episodes are only a minute long, so you may as well give it a shot.
